A few weeks after Benjamin's birth, Johnathan and I headed back to Mazatlan by bus. We had a fun trip up and then spent a very long day the next day preparing the boat for the passage to La Cruz. Our neighbours on the Fonatur dock were impressed (as was I) by the hard work from Johnathan to help me empty the storage locker and prep Fluenta for sea. Later that day our friend Keith from Sayulita arrived also by bus. The next morning after a few extra trips up the mast we were on our way.
We had a great sail and Johnathan had a chance to have his own watch as did Keith who never spent more than a few hours on sailboat before. Both did very well.
